Vintage Notes

We have harvested these few acres of 19th century zinfandel since 1967. In 1987, we began picking in late September. By that time the sugars were quite high, and contributed an intense, ripe berry character. Inclusion of the second picking, and a light, fresh egg white fining just before bottling have given the wine definition and balance. It will need a year or two in bottle to be at its most appealing.


Founded in 1959, Ridge was one of the first of today’s small, fine California wineries—limiting production to achieve the highest quality. From the beginning, close adherence to traditional winemaking techniques has set Ridge apart. This approach determines our style and includes the use of natural yeast submerged-cap fermentations, aging in small oak cooperage, and careful racking at each transfer to achieve clarity. Located above 2300 feet on Monte Bello Ridge in the Santa Cruz Mountains, our winery overlooks San Francisco Bay
